The Big Decision

Jeong Suk thought In Ho might take the liver donation as a reason to convince her t get a divorce. The resident also thought she would be asked to start a family with Doctor Kim if she accepted his organ. She was preparing to bid adieu to all when In Ho signed the divorce agreement and promised he would never force her to change her decision about their marriage.

So, Jeong Suk accepted In Ho's liver, and Doctor Kim led the organ transplant surgery. The operation was a success. The resident recovered quickly. But she focused on her career and dreams instead of dedicating her life to her family. She opened a clinic in the building, which was under her name, and enjoyed her freedom.

In the meantime, In Ho worked hard for Jeong Suk and Seung Hee. He helped with their patients and volunteered for medical camps. Doctor Kim, on the other hand, found the love of his life and enjoyed life. The medical drama featured a happy ending for all.
